“Live in Art:” this is the motto of Galerie Atena. When its founders moved to their architect house in Le Vésinet with their family, they designed each room to present their 20th century Design collection. Furniture, lighting, pieces of art: each piece is authentically vintage and is selected with care for its originality, character, aesthetic, and the quality of its materials and manufacturing.
"The Art plays a constructive role in life, especially if it is not limited to purely intellectual activity or visits to exhibitions. Art, as much as possible, must be part of our daily life." - Frédéric Sioufi
Each item of their collection has a specific “life cycle,” where each step has its own importance. First the discovery of the object, the emotion it brings with it, the pleasure of bringing it back to life, restoring it if necessary, finding it a place in his home, watching it come back to life, and then finally, meeting its new caretaker.
Life. An exceptional location. Encounters. And the concept of “Live in art” takes on its fullest sense.
